Photography Challenge: Ephemeral

30 Mar

Every year since I can remember (minus my years in college) I have gone to the Wooden Shoe Tulip field in the spring.

When I was a kid this was just a trip to see the flowers, it was a field and not much else. My mom took photographs, I most likely sat there somewhat bored.

Now the farm has almost a carnival feel to it, there are enough things there that it is hard to pull the kids away to even see the tulips.

It is still a family tradition to go and see the ephemeral spring tulip blooms although the feel of it has changed drastically over the years.

If you happen to live in Oregon it is a must do family spring time event. Woodburn is about 30 minutes south of Portland and the farm is another few miles, but if you go on the weekend and it is sunny be prepared for a long line of cars waiting to park. We waited probably 20 minutes and my Mom ended up getting out of the car and walking with the kids the rest of the way.

What are your families spring time traditions?

You too can join the weekly photography challenge at post a day.
